1) The unreal views that literally make you gasp for air. The definition of breathtaking. I love the island of Amorgos because it’s actually not a long ride anywhere to get to said views. The low level of mostly local tourism gives you the most incredible access to the island untouched and pristine. We rented an ATV for just $20 a day and bopped all around to see the island in an intimate way with our own timing. We felt like ours were the first pair of eyes to view such amazing lookouts. It’s that magical.

Where to start! The incredible + fresh ingredients that shine through simple preparation methods. The Greek islands are known for their sumptuous array of olives, just caught white fish, spicy olive oil, fresh veggies, chevre made from on-island goat milk, unbelievable dark golden honey (we mayyyy have taken some back in shampoo bottles, it was that good!), a special breed of fava beans that are cooked into a nommy paste, and wine if that’s your thing (I don’t really drink, but heard it was great!!!) Everything on island is a sybarite’s dream.

comprising the beautiful villages, and the desire to explore them, like a human maze.  You will get lost, accept it and feel into the adventure at every turn. Most streets are uneven and I basically lived in Birkenstocks, ditch your heels or anything that isn’t 100% stable and exploration-friendly.

Such amazing diversity of plants, succulent and spiky Dr .Seuss-esque plants paired with fragrant rosemary and thyme and the intoxicating jasmine. I couldn’t walk more than 60 seconds without taking a moment to literally “smell the flowers” – it’s an olfactory dream! So delicious!
